Do the [expand]tags not work in signatures - I am trying to hide the image in mine so it doesn't cause delays with dial up.[/expand]

looks like they don't, for it is not working for me either.

Edit- they are working, but they work when you enter some text with the expand option...like [*expand=Spoiler] [/*expand]

People with dial up can choose to turn off signatures if they want things to load faster.

Re: Comments on: Signatures

Also take into account the fact that the expand tags automatically add one line of text. Which reduces the number allowed lines in the sig proper to six. Your current image is 24.08 KB which really shouldn't cause any loading problems.

Re: Comments on: Signatures

Someone did my sig picture for me & he put more on than I asked for but it still looks great....I just have one problem. Does anyone know how I can get the text to stand out more, lighter colour etc? I have got hold of a copy of photoshop but I haven't got a clue what I'm doing with it. The main thing I want to stand out is the nitwit... on the bottom left, as you can babrely see it. If I can do this I can delete the text under the picture.

Any comments would be greatly appreciated.I'd ask the guy who did it but he's already changed it a cpl of times & I feel awful asking again! lol

Hi You can also ask graphic/art related questions in this thread: Artists Advice and Discussion.

To improve visibility of your text you could use a lighter colour, a clearer font (and a bit larger, too), and/or you could change the background behind the font to darken it. Other things you can try are a drop shadow on the text, a coloured stroke around it, or a glow to help make it easier to read. I hope that helps you. If not, feel free to owl me or ask in the thread above

As far as I'm aware we have the same abilities as you with sigs I can use any of these in my sig: .gif .jpg .png. Possibly a .bmp too but I haven't tested that out

Re: Comments on: Signatures

There's no difference between Hogsmeade Student and non Hogsmeade Student signatures.

Just ensure that your signature is within the COS Signature Content policy and it's all good.

Re: Comments on: Signatures

The image in my sig has vanished - did a mod take it out for any reason - it was an animated gif size 237 x 190 and 24kb

It's not away. Probably broken link from Photobucket or something wrong with the code. I see the thing there.

That's odd because I'm on Firefox and I can't see anything but text

Re: Comments on: Signatures

I see it with IE and also the Photobucket URL from the pic (http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y4/...Animation1.gif). But the URLs wrong. There's no pic with this URL on your PB account Dung. Did you moved it or renamed it or deleted it and uploaded it again. That all causes that the original URL changes and your pic dissappears. Or maybe other reasons.

Re: Comments on: Signatures

OK -- I need to clear something up. I've been working on a new signature -- a great old line-art drawing of medicine bottles I found that I made to look like an ad for love potions. I had it for about 3 seconds when I was warned by someone that I could be banned if anyone saw it, because of ire over something about love potions that is going on. Is this right? I'd hate to be banned from my favorite site because I made a great signature (well, great for me, at least) that contained Forbidden Stuff (it said "Love Potion #9)... but I want to know either way. Thanks!

By the way -- I don't read romance threads, so if it was stated in them somewhere, I beg your forgiveness of my ignorance...

No one will be banned for mentioning love potions. We've asked people not to speculate that one character was giving any other character a love potion because it gets icky rather quickly, but obviously love potions are mentioned in the book and instances where they are mentioned are open for discussion.

You can owl your sig to any member of staff if you're not sure whether or not it will be allowed, but the worst that will happen is that you'll be asked to take it down.
